Hi Peter,
Sorry for my late response.

Sure, I will, thanks a lot for your reminder.

Yes, thanks for the pointing out.

In the PMU code, it indeed sets a kvm_init_features bit. Here ARM James has a concern that we are depend on the host CPU RAS extension,
He means that if userspace receives the SIGBUS delivered by host memory_failure(), user space should record the CPER for guest
and handling the error regardless whether host CPU supports RAS extension. But I think if user space receives the SIGBUS signal, that means
host CPU RAS module detects the error or CPU consumes the poison data, thus we should check whether physical CPU support RAS extension.

Understand, I will loop you to another mail thread to consult with you that whether userspace should detect CPU RAS extension.
If all agree to detect CPU RAS feature, I will fix the issue that you pointing out.
